Traveling Through the Dark: Poems.

Stafford, William.

New York::: Harper & Row,,, 1962.. . A Near Fine copy with a previous owner's name on the flyleaf in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. Laid-in is a single sheet announcing Stafford's appearance in San Francisco for a series of readings (where this copy was purchased). Stafford's Second Trade Book. Traveling Through the Dark, was published when Stafford was forty-eight. and in 1963 it won the National Book Award. Stafford’s poems are often deceptively simple. Like Robert Frost’s, however, they reveal a distinctive and complex vision upon closer examination. James Dickey, writing in his book Babel to Byzantium, notes that Stafford’s “natural mode of speech is a gentle, mystical, half-mocking and highly personal daydreaming about the western United States.”.
